Log Wizard Sharpens Posts, Debarks Trees
The one-of-a-kind attachment is produced by Goldec International Equipment, Inc. in Red Deer, Alberta. It's especially popular for fencing and log home construction.
Debra Johnson of Goldec says, "This unique product has been on the market since 1986 but many people still don't know about it. We're currently exporting to Norway, Japan, New Zealand, Mexico, Russia, Austria and Switzerland."
The Log Wizard weighs less than 3 lbs. and uses two 3-in. blades û the same blades used on Makita planers. Therefore, replacement blades are readily available at any store carrying Makita products. The blades are reasonably priced, at about $25 per set of two. Makita also makes a 3-in. carbide blade that can be used for longer wear.
The unit mounts to any chainsaw sawbar with two bolts in less than 10 minutes. You must install a new saw chain that's one size bigger than the existing chain.
Its universal seven-tooth spline adapts to both 3/8 and .325 chain, and both sprockets are supplied.
The Log Wizard's suggested retail price is $229 U.S. Dealer and distributor inquiries are welcome. A video is available upon request.
